Discussing Decisions! Card Tables and To-Dos

Discussing Decisions! Card Tables and To-Dos

Oct 31, 2022

A raw, unedited conversation between two 37signals' two co-founders, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, about a recent decision they made regarding Card Tables (a new Kanban feature in Basecamp 4) and To-dos.

In this video discuss the decision not to allow customers to convert To-do lists or To-do items into Card Tables or Cards. Even thought it's been a top request, they go into the philosophical and practical reasons why they decided against the conversion feature.

[Note, sorry for Jason being so close to the camera, and the uneven face sizes — we're still dialing things in. Video quality will improve as we go and standardize our setups. In the meantime, full speed ahead!]
